There was a very light breeze at times and the direction was constantly variable but my Longshot got many launches over the course of a couple of hours. The occasional thermal and some light slope lift all added to the fun. After about half an hour I noticed the clip-on canopy had escaped and was lost. I spent a while wandering round the deep gorse and heather looking for it but it was hopeless. Being an observant chap I had no idea how long it had been missing! I carried on flying without the canopy and during a tea break began planning how I would make a replacement canopy. Hmm... A few flights later when I retrieved the model after a fluffed hand-catch I found the canopy by pure chance! Yippee!
